This is a fine capture of a Mallow Skipper (Carchorodus alceae). This shot is close, a little soft but well composed and with fine BG.
TFs and best wishes, Ivan

Very good fresh picture of this butterfly, Yildiz.
I am also struggling with raw format these days. I guess it requires a strong editor and the trial version of Nikon Capture is so so in my opinion. I am thinking of going for CS2.
TFs and take care.

What a beautiful Skipper you've captured here. Focus is a bit soft but details are still very beautiful and the colours very gentle and lovely. I like the composition too.
TFS and regards, Ulla

Bel close up, colorato e dettagliatissimo,
this is a beautiful, very detailed portrait of a skipper that I may have never seen before. Patterns are shown in a perfect way, composition is well balanced, and background is pleasantly colourful, contrasting, and distant.
I suppose the image might well take some more contrast to get more impact. Tried a little workshop.
With thanks, and best regards,

You have shared a very nice shot. Great pictured scene, excellent compositioin, POV and DOF. The skipper and flowers are detailed very well. BG is really amazing, well colored and blurred. I also like the workshop, shared by Peter. It eliminates all weak point of your nice picture. My compliments and TFS.

Congratulations for your first picture in RAW. Now that you have broken the ice, you will not what to go back as RAW offers so many possibilities. This is a very nice capture of this Skipper. I like the colors, texture, details, POV, composition and this beautiful BG. I think that Peter's WS gave good result too but it is very well done at the start. Keep on shooting in RAW, you'll love it :) Thanks,

Merhaba Yildiz... bonita macro con acotado pero efectivo DOF (olvidaste incluir los valores) logrando buen foco y difusión del trasfondo.
Me gusta el punto de vista captado con tonos y agudeza algo soft como puede apreciarse en el workshop de Peter.
De todas maneras, es una bella entrega... TFS.
Un cordial saludo desde Buenos Aires... Ricardo
Merhaba Yildiz... nice macro with enclosed but effective DOF (you forgot to include the values) achieving good focus and diffusion of the background.
I like the point of view captured with tones and sharpness something soft like it can be appreciated in Peter's workshop.
Anyway, it is a beautiful post... TFS.
A cordial greeting from Buenos Aires... Ricardo

It's a very nice butterfly species. I like very much its delicate colours and elegant pattern on wings. Aparently we have it in Poland but I have never encounter it. Very nice light and DOF. The image lacks a bit of contrast but Peter enhanced it very well in his workshop.
Overall a very nice job.
Best greetings and TFS!
